This book is not so dark and gritty as i thought it to be.....
I like characters, and I think the story's entertaining. World-building and relationship development, it could have been better.

DARK FUTURE by KC Klein is just that, dark. The title doesn't deceive, the story takes the reader through Kris Davenport's eyes to a very dark future where danger exists 24/7 and not always from the aliens trying to destroy every last human being. This riveting tale about a future resembling TERMINATOR SALVATION without the giant machines is dark, bloody and action-packed. Kris is a normal gal trying to make her way in a normal life as a medical intern when suddenly, she is confronted with her f ...more

Get this book immediately and read it. You'll be glad you did. Frankly, I was scared of it b/c I'd heard it was very dark (and ok, it is) and I'm so not a fan of dark, but once I started reading this, I could not put it down. Gripping from start to finish and the ending is so great! Trust me. You want to read this book. Seriously. Read it.

This is a very dark book - one of the darkest I have read in a very long time. It made me cringe. It made me heartsick. It made me ask myself, how much can two characters take? And what would you be willing to do for love and for survival?

The bulk of the story is set in a futuristic world that was a lot like the future in the Terminator movies, except there were aliens picking off the humans instead of robots. Medical intern Kris Davenport has been transported decades into the future after being

Kris Davenport is having an interesting night. First she’s awakened by a woman that claims to be her from the future, then her double takes her to the mountains, explaining on the way that she’s got to get things right this time with ConRad, then tells her to get out of the car and take a run, that there’s not much time before Armegeddon. A bit jarring, yes? Well, Kris better get used to jarring, because Dark Future is one

Someone is in Dr. Kristina Davenport’s home. It’s a woman, and it turns out she’s Kris from the future! The woman, whom Kris calls “BBD for better-body-double”, is a more ripped version of Kris. BBD failed her mission, and Kris has to start all over again, or so BBD says. Armageddon has happened, and Kris is perplexed, not to say highly doubtful of her visitor’s mental health. But BBD is not to be deterred; she sends Kris for a run, and when Kris wakes up, she’s face to face with a huge beast. S ...more
A Voracious Reader (a.k.a. Carol)
Kris Davenport, a surgical intern, is woken up in the middle of the night and is scared shitless by a future version of herself. An older, weary, harder, tougher, kick ass version, but definitely her. Her future self tells her she has come back to send Kris forward, again, to get The Prophecy right. She can’t fail because Armageddon has happened and the dark future rests on her shoulders. She needs to fulfill The Prophecy and turn the dark future to the light. And to do that she needs to run up ...more

Then she learns why the future her is there and how it affects her. What follows is a love story and a fight to end all fights. Kris is pushed beyond her limits and more. She sees things and experiences things she never thou ...more

This was a very dark and intense romance, without all the fluff. There was definitely the Terminator vibe in here, but instead of the past, Sarah Connor was brought to the future to save mankind. Kris, was brought to the future unwillingly to save ConRad, which is suppose to be her mission. And of course she doesn't have first had knowledge of what is happening. First quarter of the book showed Kris discovering what lies in the future with aliens invading the Earth, and ConRad is a Commander of ...more

Dark Future was an exciting read, focused on the adventure, with a female lead Kris Davenport whose development was exciting to follow. I followed Kris who I was not even sure I was going to like. As she meets the guy she is supposed to save, breaks rules and learns what it means to be a woman, from the future living in a world where woman are basically treated like they cannot make choices.

This is a dark and pretty good read. The beginning was a little hard to follow but once you get past that

Time travel with a dark and painful twist. How would you like to be awakened by someone who looks just like you and then told it's up to you to save the future. This story is filled with fear, horror's, physical and mental pain, secrets, love and betrayal. She finds the future unbelievable and wants only to return home. But it's not as easy to get back as it was to there. She will have to endure many trials and much pain. I don't do spoilers, so I'm afraid this will have to do. Believe me, when ...more

As I started this book it grabbed my attention and would not let go. I love that for me personally that you have to pay attention to everything you read or you might get lost.

The book is about a woman that was awoken from her sleep by a woman that looked just like her but different at the same time. She learns she has to travel through time to save a man and hopefully change the time loop she is stuck in. Caught between wanting to go back to her time or still there with the man she falls in love

I like paranormal books, but not usually books set in the future. This was more of a sci-fi futuristic with time travel. It was amazing! The idea was not that far-fetched either. Out of the last few books I have read, this one is my favorite! the plot was well-written enough that it played out in my head like a movie. I would totally see this on the big screen! Kris and ConRad have a spark between them that can be felt through the pages as the prophecy plays out. This is definitely worth the rea ...more

OMG - this was an incredible book. It was action packed from the start. Kris was a relatable heroine (and has some great I-know-that-exact-feeling!! moments) and ConRad was uber alpha hero in full survival mode (AKA rugged sexy). I got so sucked into this book, my entire life went on hold so I could finish reading it (and for a Type A like me, that's saying a lot).
If you want a book so good you can't put it down (or even think of eating/sleeping) GET THIS BOOK!!

As I was reading this futuristic book I couldn't believe that it is just that a book. The plots and twists were well written so you thought you were right there with Kris Davenport and ConRad Smith and everyone else in the book.
Hard to put down, a very good read for people looking for a something different to read. Looking forward to more books written by KC Klein.

Really enjoyed this book. KC Klein has a quirky, fast-paced, intensely action-oriented style. But maybe the best part is the never-seem-like-they-will-get-together romance. So satisfying. Lots of aliens and death and life-at-stake. Action-movie fans will like this book.

Dark Future is the third book in the Dark Future series. It can be read as a standalone as it doesn’t have a cliffhanger, and it took a while to see all the connections to the series. Kris is from our times and it visited buy a future version of herself so she can full fill a prophecy. Before she knows what happens she is falling into a portal to another time and dimension. (I assume this is the similar timeframe as book one, or close to. ) There is so much that happens but to say any more would ...more

I feel like I really could have enjoyed this book if it weren't a romance novel. Which, you know, is a funny and probably telling thing to say about a romance novel, but there it is. Dark Future has an interesting concept, some nice snark, and an amusingly awkward heroine who flails rather realistically in her new setting. Unfortunately it's also got her relationship with ConRad Smith, and that just sort of ruins everything.

I actually kind of liked our heroine, Kris Davenport - quite a bit for a

Let me make something very clear from the outset--I have conflicted feelings in regards to this book. For a good deal of the book it was playing out beautifully. Kris gets sent to the future by a future version of herself (a crazy, deranged, gun-wielding future version no less)to save HIM, gets stuck in a world where women are a scarcity, giant alien bugs roam around eating them and the religious zealots are in control.

If ConRad seemed to be more bi-polar then sane, I forgave that since the enti

Dark Future's book blurb had me super excited for the story of aliens and Kris' Terminator-style time jump to save the human race.
"Awakened in the middle of the night by a future version of herself, Kris Davenport is given a mission; go forward in time to save the world and his life. Of course, her future self doesn't tell her who he is, just sends her into the abyss and straight into an alien invasion."
Sadly, as I read, I spanned the rainbow of feelings. What began as excitement, quickly swi

This book had a really intriguing set up.

The 'travel to the future to save someone' made me think of Terminator and the future world Klein created was dark and grim. So far so good.

I wish I could say this was a great read. I really do, because it has so much potential. Sadly enough that potential isn't used and the plot of this story made no sense at all to me.

The romance was a miss as well. There's absolutely no believable build-up. I really couldn't find a reason why Kris and ConRad suddenly l

Full review to be posted soon. I really liked the premise of this book, but it really needed a lot of polishing up. Also the world-building was a huge let down and in a lot of ways pretty confusing at times and it felt that too much was going on but not a lot time and focus was exploring this.

Definitely dark and tortured, but a romance after all. If you like it dark and rough, and hopeless until the very end, you'll love this book.
